Lorac Unzipped Cheek & Lip - Review

One of the newest additions to my makeup collection is the Lorac Unzipped Cheek Palette & Alter Ego Lip Set.  This amazing little set from Lorac is totally worth the $30 price tag.  It comes with a palette of 4 blushes, 2 matte and 2 shimmer, and one full size lipstick.  

I love that the palette comes with 2 shimmer blushes and 2 matte shades.  This makes it perfect for me to travel with.  Most people probably don't need to bring 4 blushes with them, but I don't do too much in moderation, so I always feel like I need to bring plenty of options with me.

The Girl Next Door Alter Ego lipstick, which is a permanent shade in their collection, is a beautiful light pink/coral color.  It is very opaque and thick, which has it pros and cons.  It is pretty long lasting, I noticed it lasted for quite a while, but can be a bit drying on my already dry lips.  

The two matte blushes are Underrated and Unashamed.  Underrated is a more warm toned pink shade that looks gorgeous on the skin.  This blush is extremely smooth and silky and lasts for a long time on the skin.  Unashamed is a bright cool toned pink blush.  This bright blue based pink might be a bit frightening for some but if you use a light hand and lightly dust the color over your cheeks it can be totally wearable!  Since it is such a bright color I will probably save this color more for summer when bright colors are in and I have more of a tan.

Unapologetic and Unimaginable are both beautiful shimmery shades.  Unapologetic is a gorgeous warm brown color with bits of gold shimmer. Like all the other shades, this is very smooth and silky, and applies like a dream.  Unimaginable is probably my favorite shade from the whole palette.  It is a light peachy pink with a touch of shimmer.  This color just gives your cheeks a healthy glow, and if you have a darker skin tone, could totally be used as a dramatic highlight.  I like that both the shimmer shades give a beautiful sheen rather than have chunks of glitter, which usually fades and can get a bit messy.

Overall, I give this set two thumbs up.  Considering the full size lipstick that is included retails for $16, this set is a great bargain.  All four blushes are amazingly smooth and silky, and last for quite a while.  My two favorite shades are definitely Underrated and Unimaginable.
